DCS is selected as the first Cloud Provider in Thailand for OfficeAbilityTM by Mai Thai Enterprises
SoftwarePark, Bangkok, April 23rd, 2013 - Mr. Harin Upara, Managing Director of Datapro Computer Systems Co., Ltd. (DCS) and Mr. Marlon McMartin, Managing Director of Mai Thai Enterprises Co., Ltd., have announced their cooperation for launching OfficeAbility in Thailand. Through this cooperation, DCS will be the first Cloud data center services and marketing provider in Thailand for OfficeAbility, which is Enterprise Social Networking Software-as-a-Service (SAAS).
“Social Enterprise will fulfill the need for improved efficiency in any organization in this social media era as it greatly simplifies communication, information sharing, forum management, and project management. OfficeAbility not only manages those tasks, similar to leading social network applications, but also ensures customers with high data security. Different from the general social network applications, users can manage and search for files and communicate through social messaging while working within a secure enterprise environment.” Khun Harin said.
“When we were ready to expand our market into Thailand, we began by looking for an appropriate business partner who could provide local professional data center services and Thailand marketing support. DCS is an ideal partner for us, is owned and managed by Thais, and has been in the IT business dealing with leading organizations for 26 years. DCS has ISO standards data center services and has experience in providing outsourcing services for big name companies in variety of business verticals. They have been highly supportive and we are very pleased to be working alongside DCS”, Mr. McMartin said.
This cooperation is also a success of Thailand Software Park by National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), which, through Cloud Thailand Alliance, encourages Thailand Cloud Computing Service providers and software developers to raise the standard of the Software-as-a-Service business and make it more sustainable in Thailand.
Cloud Thailand Alliance (CTA) is a group created in cooperation with SoftwarePark, NSTDA and various Cloud Computing service providers in the country who have ISO standards data center facilities. CTA was created in part to promote SaaS industry in Thailand and to become support center for Thai cloud technology software developers, to advance the development business, as well as to reduce the costs of data center services.
“As expected when setting up CTA last year, we are now certain that we will have a chance to encourage high quality software developers and to help introduce world-class SaaS product for Thailand business. The cooperation between DCS and Mai Thai Enterprises is an indication that nicely confirms our readiness in stepping up as a SaaS provider in Thailand.” Khun Harin maintains.
